Tears are Burning

Originally written September 11, 2001

[verse]
what does it take
to kill a virgo sky?
then bury it’s warmth
beneath ash and tar

a heartless soul
wielding war
like a coupon clipped
in a grocery store

[chorus]
a body cries
it’s points are turning
in the darkest night
tears are burning
tears are burning

[bridge]
like a scene right from hollywood
this film may never be understood
movie ends, the plot i’m learning
and somewhere tonight
tears are burning

[chorus]
a family cries
it’s points are turning
in the darkest night
tears are burning
tears are burning

[verse]
so what becomes
of all that’s gone
the life, the loss
tomorrow’s dawn

we’re living in
a world that’s churning
let peace flood
all that’s burning

[chorus]
a nation cries
it’s points are turning
in the darkest night
tears are burning
tears are burning
